“Thai it up!”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

this is the best Thai food around Southern MN. it is great being able to order the level of spiciness in your food.
don't let the other reviews about reservations deter you from making this a stop and try. we went on a saturday and sat right at the bar where the full menu is available. the waiter was courteous and helpful in answering questions about the food options and preparation.
although we had an appetizer, i feel their food proportions were the perfect amount.

“Great find in sports bar ghetto”
Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

Excellent decor and superb food, warm welcome from the staff, who could ask for more. We visited this restaurant based or recommendations from locals and it was a good choice.

“Great new restaurant”
Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

I have tried this place twice now, both times being very impressed by the food. Unfortunately, the service from the kitchen is quite slow, and at my most recent visit had to wait two full hours with a full restaurant to complete the meal. The food looks and tastes spectacular. The ambience is a great place for a date.

“Long beautiful granite bar, great food, good service.”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

We went on a Thursday night without reservations at around 6 pm. This restaurant opened in the past year. Seats were available but the restaurant filled up while we were there. As someone else mentioned, reservations do not guarantee quick seating . You can however reserve anything, including the couch at the entrance (so said our waiter) or even the beautiful bar. This is a small modern restaurant with a young person vibe. Tables are far enough apart so does not seem crowded even when full. Within easy walking distance to Mayo Clinic.There is a back entrance. There is street parking in the back that is free in the evening. Since it is on South Broadway you cannot park directly in front of the restaurant. Pretty Asian themed bathrooms. Excellent fresh foods. Spicy but they will modify. Service is quick and friendly. Will definitely return.

“A surprising find in the middle of the typical.”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

I found Mango Thai while driving down Broadway, and on my next trip to Rochester, gave it a try. I was impressed with the decor, more upscale than I would have thought for what I thought was going to be a "storefront" restaurant. Coming from So.Cal, I've enjoyed my share of good Thai restaurants. The food was tasty, spiced to please. The service was a different experience. I have to agree with other reviews, service is a place for management to make some changes... With a few changes to some details, this could be a great place to take someone on "date night".
